Looking for advice about using Scrivener for writing a scientific PhD thesis

Hi everyone, I've used Scrivener compiling to MMD to LaTeX, then to PDF before, but abandoned it for pure LaTeX due to frustrations with Scrivener (mainly due to my own lack of knowlege and being too short of time to learn what I needed to know). My PhD thesis isn't due for another 2 years so I have...

Selecting LaTeX typesetting and bibliography engines

Hi, I've changed to using Texpad as my LaTeX editor and am very pleased with it, and use XeLaTeX and Biber for my documents. However, now when I try and compile a Scrivener document using MMD -> LaTeX and open the resulting .tex document in Texpad, it defaults to the built-in Texpad typesetter and b...

Re: Numbered list appearing without Markdown

List numbering is 'None', unless there's some other way to do it.

I've re-written the whole subsection, and trashed the old one. If anyone figures it out please let me know.

Thanks,
Emma

Numbered list appearing without Markdown

Hi, I have a subsection with plain text and a latex figure. There are no numbered lists, however when I compile to LaTeX, \begin{enumerate} appears with \item at the beginning of each paragraph, and also replacing the caption within the figure. I have absolutely no idea what's causing this, the rest...

Re: LaTeX article section types

Great, thank you, that's very clear. I'm still getting to grips with how processing is variously handled by Scrivener and MMD.

Thanks again,
Emma

Re: Inline LaTeX with MMD 6

Hi, I don't use the command line - I compile in Scrivener for MMD to LaTeX. Copying and pasting what you have done using the backtick into my document gives: Here is a test \textbackslash{}delta to see if escaping \delta works The dollar signs now work, although I've just updated my LaTeX distributi...

LaTeX article section types

Hi, Me again. I'm creating a LaTeX document with document class article. I have my main folders under Draft set as section type 'Section', and sub-documents under these set as section-type 'Structure-Based'. When compiled to LaTeX, the main folders are converted to \part{}, and the sub-documents to ...

Re: Inline LaTeX with MMD 6

Thanks for the suggestions. I can confirm that: ⋅  $ and $$ do not work in MMD6 (for me, anyway) ⋅  Using a single backtick does not work inline (I still get the \texttt issue) ⋅  Using \\( and \\) does work to give inline math using MMD6 to LaTeX. Thanks again, Emma

Inline LaTeX with MMD 6

Hi, Thanks to those who have detailed some of the MMD6 changes. I'm using the ````{=latex} \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} ```` for block LaTeX equations, figures, tables etc. and it's working well. I want to use an inline LaTeX maths expression though, to put Greek symbols in my text, which I c...

Re: Upgraded to Scrivener 3.0.3 - LaTeX won't compile now

Thanks - yes, it was a pretty dumb thing to do. Upgrading to MMD6 and making the BibTex change appears to have fixed most of the issues.

Thanks,

Upgraded to Scrivener 3.0.3 - LaTeX won't compile now

Hi, Stupidly I upgraded to 3.0.3 thinking nothing major could have changed (I compile for MMD to Latex). Now the mmd-xxx-begin/header/footer.tex files have been renamed to mmd6-xxx-header.tex etc., and my .tex file will not compile at all, as it cannot find any of the preamble or begin document stuf...

Missing apostrophe in PDF

Hi, I'm using Scrivener 3 on a Mac (macOS 10.12.6), compiling for MMD to LaTeX, then using TexStudio to convert my LaTeX to a PDF. In Scrivener Preferences I have 'Use smart quotes in new projects' checked and 'Disable smart quotes, dashes and ellipses in script mode' unchecked. When I type somethin...

Re: LaTeX header and begin document components missing in compile

Hi,

It appears to be a MMD6 issue as I've reverted to MMD 5.4.0 and everything is working fine. Think I'll wait a while before updating :-)

thanks,
